Ed and Sylvia Christy have been working to plant churches in the Bordeaux region of France since 1990 with Baptist Mid-Missions. They have found many opportunities as well as faced great challenges in establishing a strong community of Christ-followers. Their first church plant now has its own French pastor and building. Currently, the Christys are launching a new church in St. Medard-en-Jalles. Ed and Sylvia have two grown children: Grant, who is an accountant in Paris, and Jana, who lives with her husband and children in France.
Way to Pray: The Christys need a larger meeting place for their church that satisfies safety codes, parking requirements, and is within budget. The Christys would love to see new French laborers for the harvest as well as new missionaries come alongside them. Please also pray for Sylvia as she cares for her aging parents from afar. Pray for wisdom, strength, and patience.
